Thank you for considering becoming a Family House Volunteer!
There are a variety of opportunities for you to volunteer at Family House. We work with each volunteer to make sure your valuable time is used efficiently and productively. We have been fortunate to work with an abundance of hardworking San Francisco corporate, church, school and independent groups.
House Support VolunteersVolunteers select a day of the week--morning or afternoon shift. The position includes working off a checklist to ensure that the house is well stocked and tidy. Other duties might include arts and crafts, reading, playing games with children, staffing the office, running errands, picking up food, and a variety of other tasks.
Corporate VolunteersCorporate projects include prepping and painting bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas, gardening, deep-cleaning and other chores that can be completed in a group. This kind of help is invaluable to us and can definitely become a wonderful team building experience.
Saturday Work-Day VolunteersEvery Second Saturday of the month, we host a Saturday-Work-Day from 10am to 1pm at 1234 10th Avenue. This is the perfect opportunity for volunteers with limited schedules to work in a group setting on projects around the house. Projects may include but are not limited to organizing and disinfecting common areas, sorting donations, tending gardens, hosting arts and crafts days, and baking goodies for our families.
Please email volunteer coordinator, Amy Lenz at email@example.com to confirm your attendance at least one day before the event or if you have any questions. Be sure to dress comfortably and not wear anything that you do not want to get dirty.
